Homespun Living in a New England

More experiments in self-striping handspun

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Like the batch I made yesterday, today's skeins use long, long color repeats (though there is some mixing of hues within those). In this case, I went a little bit simpler, and used the same set of colors for each ply. They won't match up perfectly, so there will be sections of green and orange/green and orange, purple/purple, and green and orange/purple. 



The composition of this batch is similar to what I've been doing a lot of lately: BFL, merino, mohair and the tiniest bit of silk noil. I'd estimate that there are around 100 yards; it's quite bulky and multi-textural.
